Department of Economics The Ohio State University Economics 817: Game Theory Syllabus and Reading List James Peck and David Schmeidler M-W 11:30 - 1:18 Autumn 2007 Derby 47 www.econ.ohio-state.edu/jpeck/Econ817.htm Course Objectives: This course aims to thoroughly treat the field of Game Theory, and provide you with useful tools for understanding current research and performing your own research in the field. The course follows the organization of the text by Osborne and Rubinstein, supplemented by a few “classic” articles. Course Requirements: Students will present a game theory article to the class, and write a short 3-5 page referee’s report (on another article that was not presented in class). The presentation and referee’s report each count for 45% of the grade. In addition, there will be 3 or 4 homework assignments, which count for the remaining 10%. Study groups are allowed on the homework assignments, in which you can discuss the questions and talk about how to solve them. However, you need to write up the answers individually and without help, and indicate on your writeup the names of the people in your study group. Homework grades are based on full credit for a good faith effort, zero credit otherwise. Textbook: Osborne, M. J. and A. Rubinstein, “ A Course in Game Theory ,” The MIT Press, 1994. We will use the abbreviation, O-R. Other sources (not required): Fudenberg and Tirole, “ Game Theory ,” The MIT Press, 1992. Myerson, “
